Photo Credit: Sephora
What it is:
An innovative serum that instantly hydrates and adds radiance to the skin.
What it does:
HD complexion collection uses innovative formulas to create a new generation of makeup that is invisible on high-definition cameras and to the naked eye. This unique, lightweight elixir absorbs quickly into the skin, instantly hydrating and brightening the complexion. The breakthrough formula contains D-Panthenol and Glycerin to ensure an immediate boost of hydration (+520% after 15 minutes) that lasts throughout the day (+175% after 6 hours). Argatensyl is added to provide an immediate smoothing effect. Each ingredient was specifically added to prepare skin for high- definition makeup—so you can count on the camera picking up the perks of this perfecting formula.
What else you need to know:
This product is oil and paraben free and dermatologist tested.
I purchased this product in the Spring of 2009.
I still have more than half a bottle left. I only use it on my problem areas.
How I wish I could sleep on my back like the characters did in Memoirs of a Geisha. Then I wouldn't have these pesky crepe-y lines on the sides of my nose, connected to my marionette lines.
I use this AFTER I tone, & BEFORE I moisturize & prime.
I give it a few minutes to absorb into my skin.
I do like the product.
- It does make my skin feel as soft as a baby's bottom.
- I found it works really well with the MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Primer.
I've also used it with Korres primer and MAC Skin Primer with equally favorable results.
- When I've used this product, I've received many compliments on my skin.
People have told me I look "YOUNGER". Always a bonus. Right?
- If you have any microscopic cuts or abrasions,
(such as from over active exfoliating) yes, this will sting.
- PRICEY! I don't think I could live without this product. I'm HOOKED!
